kick drums, put 1 mic in the usual spot, and another inside the shell, facing the wood.

listen to "pull me from the floor" here http://www.myspace.com/thepinwheels

big bassy sound w/o too much ringing.

recorded by Al

less is more.

basic drumkit ?

you don't need more than three or four mics, max !

we're about to record a diy demo with lustrous (got a bunch of recording equipment) and our drummer wants tons and tons of mics for his kit, close-mic'd drums sound lame, let that kit breathe.

i can't give any other tips because i'm just a noob when it comes to diy recording, obviously.

i like the 2 on the kick as mentioned. otherwise, one between snare and high hat, and two overheads. if getting fancy, a mic behind the drummer about 5 feet, and an under snare could be alright. i don't like triggering drums.

guitar, i like one on the speaker, and one a couple feet back.

on bass, one mic, and one direct line in.

on vocals, i just stick my dick in their mouth.

A good recording is shit without a Good performance. The players make the recordings. Look at some of the old 50's shit when everything was recorded at the same time. Talent.

Whilst Id say that that's true most of the time, I think there are definitely times when it's better not to.

I meant more of the "take" or performance of the musician, but playing together live can rawk hard too.
